CALL: Fellowship at Metrograph

Fellowship Introduction



The Metrograph is launching a unique fellowship for cinema professionals in the Fall of 2021. Unlike traditional fellowships which focus solely on emerging artists, the Metrograph Fellowship will cultivate talent in the business and craft of cinema. In providing an experience unlike any other, the Metrograph will immerse fellows into the world of cinema and shape an emerging class of creative professionals.


The Fellows will also serve as ambassadors for Metrograph, creating opportunities and content for their communities with, around, and about Metrograph.



The Metrograph Fellowship is a 15 week professional fellowship (with an option to extend) open to undergraduate college seniors, graduate students, and recent graduates. 


Fellows will work within their departments for 15-20 hours per week (schedules to be determined among Fellows, Head of Fellowship, and Department Heads) on department specific projects and their own portfolio projects.  


There will be regular cohort meetings with the Head of Fellowship as well as guests from across the industry and Metrograph community. 


This is a paid opportunity.  Metrograph Fellows will be paid an hourly rate of $25 and must be eligible to work in the US.


The Fellowship will begin in Fall 2021/Winter 2022 and is expected to be both in person at Metrograph’s theater and offices on Ludlow Street in New York City and virtually as the changing Covid protocols, departmental needs, and individual Fellows needs influence and change this expectation.





Metrograph is seeking aspiring cinema professionals for the inaugural METROGRAPH FELLOWSHIP.

Projection & Digital Exhibition

The Projection Fellow will be an integral part of the workflow of the Technical, Programming, and Digital department workflows and get to know the operations of Metrograph’s At Home and In Theatre exhibition.
